Show of hands
All stand up – sit down those of you who think global warming is a too big a problem for us to tackle individually.
Stand up all people - sit down those who have more than five brothers + sisters. Sit down 4, 3, 2 – clap for their parents. Indonesia is the world’s largest Muslim country.
Who likes going to Landa Bazaar? Stand up whoever uses a pre-loved phone? Give them a clap.
Stand up anyone here who has a home vegetable patch? Give them a clap. Stand up all NGO members with health, nutrition or livelihood programmes – sit down if they don’t feature kitchen gardens? Give the remainder a clap.
Stand up all – sit those who haven’t watched ‘ An Inconvenient Truth ’. Clap those who have.
Stand up if you area member of the Wake-up! Campaign to end so-called honour killing – give them a clap.
How do you know you’re making a difference in your work? What tools do you use to assess impact in your organisation? What workplace policies make your organisation environmentally-friendly?
